MURRAY COUNTY, OK - Highway 177 was shut down from about 9 Saturday morning until 12:30 p.m. just north of the Murray County and Carter County line.

"The semi was northbound on U.S. 177," said Trooper Tim Brinson. "The driver for unknown reasons departed the roadway, the driver over-corrected, came back onto the roadway, overturned."

The Sulphur Fire Department and Murray County Sheriff's Office also responded to the scene and found the driver missing.

"The driver fled from the scene," said Brinson.

Chicken feed the truck was carrying covered part of the roadway. The Oklahoma Department of Transportation was called out to help clean up.

Saturday afternoon OHP said they were contacting the trucking company for information about the driver.
